Now that summer has drawn to a close and autumn is gently making itself known, the change of seasons has opened a whole new world of discoveries to Charlie.
Of course he doesn't remember this time last year so it's all new to him. At least I'm pretty sure he doesn't remember, but the kid does have the memory of an elephant so nothing would surprise me.
The evenings are getting cooler so we are taking our evening walk a bit earlier, and by the time he's had dinner and his bath, it's starting to get dark.
(Totally unrelated to the story but exceptionally cute photo)
And Charlie is fascinated by the dark. He runs from room to room to see which ones are dark and which have lights on. He's not scared thank goodness, just curious.
The dark brings a whole new perspective to the familiar things and places.
We must also look out the window into the dark, and look for the stars and the moon.
Then all is right with the world.
I love seeing the world through such innocent eyes.
